Yeay!! After weeks of waiting for any announcement of this year's line up, Strictly returned last weekend with the usual glitter, glamour and gossip. Due to a technical error in our house I have yet to see the launch show (but have made up for it by cobbling together as many YouTube clips as possible to make up (more or less) the entire show!
My personal favourite is sprinter Iwan Thomas (he's from the Greg Rutherford school of sports star in my view - fit and ginger!). He's been paired with Ola Jordan and can confidently rock a sequin so my hopes are high.
Relatively new, and very easy on the eye, pro-dancer Aljaz has been put with the very pretty Call The Midwife actress Helen George.
Down at the bottom end of the bookies list are Jeremy Vine (with Karen Clifton) and Carol Kirkwood (who's with the very lovely Pasha).
Favourites to win however are Peter Andre and Janette Manrara, and really, who can fail to warm to the chirpy Antipodian..?!
The couples now have 3 weeks to get acquainted, get their sequins on and keeeeeeeeep dancing!!
